Gift Guide: $25 and Under

I have never done a gift guide before but after doing my own gift shopping and getting overwhelmed with all the cool products out there, I thought a gift guide would help me narrow down what I should look at and give me ideas on what to shop for that particular person.
This will be the first of the Gift Guide series as we also need to look at gifts under $50, $100 and $150, and maybe for those feeling generous a Luxury Gift Guide as well. 
Each gift guide will cover gifts for Her, Him, the Hostess, the Gym Buff and the Pet Lover. I thought we all have that one friend under one of those categories, so shall we get started!

for HER

Women of all ages love makeup, so you can never go wrong stuffing her stocking with some budget friendly makeup products. ColourPop and E.L.F cosmetics have budget friendly prices, so you can find tons of eyes, lips and face products just from these websites alone. The Sephora Collection Winter Magic Eyeshadow Palette | $10.00 is a great travel-friendly eyeshadow palette. It has all the shadows you need for a day-to-night look. Another favorite is this travel size BECCA OPAL Glow On The Go Kit | $20.00, which complements all skin tones. 
This faux fur bear robe | $25.00 is perfect for snuggling by the fireplace or while binge watching on Netflix. I actually have bought this one for myself. Match it with a pair of faux fur slippers | $14.99 and you are set for cuddling weather!

for HIM

Last year I shared my DIY Advent Calendar for HIM, and it had lots of ideas on what to gift him, you can read that HERE. At this price range shaving kits are such a bargain like this one from Jack Black Shave Essentials Kit | $25.00. It has all the shaving products he needs and he gets to try the brand, to see if he likes it or not. 

I have learned from my hubby that one way he adds some color and personality to his office wear is with his socks, and there are tons you can find in this price range such as from Happy Socks Assorted Printed Crew Socks Gift Box pack of 4 pairs | $48 $19.97, Men's Star Wars Crew Socks | $9.95, Lucky Brand Men's Crew Socks 4pk | $14.95. Also, you can never go wrong with a graphic t-shirt of his favorite movie or band or food or dog like this Star Wars t-shirt | $20.00, Game of Thrones t-shirt | $14.99, Coca-Cola t-shirt | $21.00 and this Los Angeles Pop Art Cat Sleveless shirt | $23.99.

for The Hostess

I always say go for the "too-beautiful-to-be functional" items when buying the hostess with the mostest like this Belmot Faceted Bottle Opener | $12.74, Threshold Bottle Stopper in Gold and Aluminum finish | $5.99, H&M Napkin Rings | $9.99 and this Made in India Marble Cheese Board | $12.99. These not only look beautiful on the table at her next dinner party but they're useful as well.

I also love giving personalized items like this monogrammed Rosanna Porcelain Alphabet Trinket Tray | $18 $10.80 and these Anthropologie monogrammed mugs | $10.00.


for The Gym Buff

There are tons of gym bag must-haves out there and here are a few that I like $25 and under. Dry shampoo is a gym bag must-have, and my fave is from Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk | $10.00. Also check out E.L.F Active collection which has a $6-8 price range. The Post Workout Cool Down Mist | $8.00 smells so nice and really hydrates the skin after a sweaty workout. I like the Post-Workout Cleansing Body Wipes | $3.00 for a quick refresher when I can't take a shower right away after a workout.


 for The Pet Lover

I'm a sucker for any pet dedicated homeware products, clothing, desk accessories and decor. Here are a few that a pet lover would appreciate: cat trinket dish | $19.00, "home is where your dog is" mat | $19.99, "Underwater Dogs" book | $13.35, Menswear Dog Book | $16.95 and this West Elm ceramic dog planter | $19.00
Just make sure you got the right dog breed for your friend!


        I based the items I picked for this gift guide with what I would like; what my friends and family would like. I always try to pick items that will match the person's style and personality which makes the gifts more personal, I think. It shows that you truly know them!
